How to Make Cream of Cauliflower Soup

Step-by-Step

  • 1Melt butter over low heat and saute your onions and celery until they are translucent.
  • 2In a large pot, combine the sauted veggies with broth and cauliflower. Simmer unitl the cauliflower is tender.
  • 3With a slotted spoon, remove the veggies from the pot and place into a blender. Carefully pour as much broth as will fit into the blender and puree until smooth. (let the steam vent thru your lid a little to prevent decorating your cabinets with HOT cauliflower)
  • 4Pour your pureed mixture back into the pan and add your cream, salt and pepper.
  • 5This is soooooo smooth! It is better than cream potato soup, the texture is much more fine
  • 6If you want to reduce some calories, use skim milk or even low fat sour cream instead of the half & half.
  • 7Zest it up Options: Add 1/4 C american cheese and melt into the soup.
    Top with fresh parsley sprigs Add 1/4 t of nutmeg or mace
